Sixteen students grades 4-8 competed in Monday night's Bucyrus City Spelling Bee, but it would be the defending champion who once again walked away with the top prize, surprising even herself.

Sixth grader Emma McAdam's won the event for the second year in a row, and says she was "shocked" after accomplishing the feat again. Leanna Giesige helped coordinate the event and says the competition went very well.

Crawford County will hold their spelling bee on February 18, followed by Richland County's event on February 28. The top speller's from each event will then join McAdam's at the Tri-County spelling bee on March 18, where the winner will move on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC.
